Hoop-la!

Ever since I saw gallery walls put together with fabric covered embroidery hoops, I’ve been in love!
And I’ve been racking my brain about where to put them!  I mean how easy would they be to make?!
All you need are some hoops, some fabulous fabric, and art is born!  Love!
Let’s take a little look at some amazing galleries!

Lovely!!
Pretty, pretty, pretty!
So in enter my desire to make a fabric covered embroidery hoop!
While out at the fabric store one day with my little brood, my daughter found the prettiest yellow fabric!
I had to buy it, and I knew just what I was going to do with a little piece of it!
Make my very own hoop!
  • I bought a wooden embroidery hoop from Michaels
  • And because I like to spray paint, I sprayed it Antique White to match everything else I’ve got goin’ on in my home!
  • Then when it was all dry, I covered the hoop with the fabric.  Just make sure to pull the fabric tight, but not too tight, as you don’t want the fabric to become warped.
  • Hang!

So easy.  So pretty.  Love!
Stay tuned to see where I’ve put it!

  • Reply Celeste August 21, 2011 at 11:31 PM I've also never seen this before...but I love it! The one with the hoops above the crib made me think of planets...I may have to find some marbled and tye-dyed fabrics to make the different planets if we ever make the space-themed nursery my husband wants. :)

  • Reply Dori March 9, 2015 at 4:19 PM Hi Love this!! What do you do with any extra fabric in the back of the hoop? Your hoops don't show any excess when hung on the wall.
    • Reply Jo-Anna@APrettyLife March 9, 2015 at 8:01 PM Hi Dori! I just trimmed the excess fabric off of the back with my scissors!
